The U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of Oklahoma announced that Jeremy Lee Poafpybitty a/k/a “Chooch”, age 33, of Bunch, Oklahoma was sentenced to 24 months’ imprisonment, and 3 years of supervised release for Assaulting An Employee Of The United States With A Deadly And Dangerous Weapon. The charges arose from an investigation by the United States Postal Inspection Service and the Tahlequah Police Department.
The Indictment alleges that on or about July 24, 2018 the defendant knowingly, intentionally, and forcibly, with the use of a knife, assaulted, opposed, impeded, intimidated, and interfered with and inflicted bodily injury to an employee of the United States Postal Service while in the performance of official duties.
“United States Postal Service employees overcome many challenges to delivering mail, but violence is one they should never have to face. The defendant is being justly punished for his violent acts against the victim, a postal employee,” said United States Attorney Brian J. Kuester.
The Honorable Ronald A. White, U.S. District Judge in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Oklahoma, in Muskogee, presided over the hearing. Assistant U.S. Attorney Shannon Henson represented the United States.
